    182182If you prefer hardcopy help, print this file, run FM/2,
    183 press Ctrl + F1, click the "Print" button at the bottom of
    184 the help window that appears and then print both the
    185 "Contents" and "All sections" (keep an eye on the printer,
     183press F1, click the "Print" button at the bottom (IBM View)
     184or top (Newview)of the help window that appears and then print
     185both the "Contents" and "All sections" (keep an eye on the printer,
    186186after page 100 of "All sections" as the Help Manager will
    187187begin printing its own help then -- you may want to abort
     
    283283
    284284If FM/2 won't run, the probable culprit is CONFIG.SYS. Your
    285 LIBPATH statement should contain a ".\" entry. If yours
     285LIBPATH statement should contain a ".;" entry. If yours
    286286doesn't, add it. It's standard for an OS/2 installation, but
    287287some buggy install programs knock it out because they
    288288translate entries to their full pathname before rewriting
    289 (so ".\" gets translated to whatever the current directory
    290 is for the buggy install program). What this ".\" entry does
     289(so ".;" gets translated to whatever the current directory
     290is for the buggy install program). What this ".;" entry does
    291291is allow a program to find and use .DLL files in the
    292292program's current directory -- obviously something you want

    298298If things in FM/2 are suddenly acting strange after an
    299 upgrade, first make _sure_ you unpacked _all_ the files and
    300 overwrote the old ones, then ran INSTALL.CMD to update your
    301 WPS objects.
     299upgrade, first check the intergrety of the install
     300using wrapin. If it shows a problem rerun the install
     301package. If that fails try installing to a new directory
     302or backup your existing directory so you can save any changes
     303you made to the template files then uninstall and reinstall.
     304Once you have FM/2 working migrate the *.ini,*.dat, *.tls, *.bb2
     305and *.cmd from your old install/backup to recover your custom
     306settings
